Right. If you choose to break the pattern in use in the rest of avalon 
(which Stephens stuff does) then you are guarenteed that it will only work 
in phoenix and merlin atm (as they are the only ones that allow remapping 
of dependencies). ECM/Fortress/Myrmidon all map to classname directly (no 
ifs no buts) and Phoenix/Merlin encourages mapping to classname.

The reason Stephen wants to use arbitrary strings is because he chooses to 
make the names meaningful and store metadata (he reuses the role name as 
name of logger, name of component etc). Personally I would encourage him to 
instead store it in attributes of dependency rather than in rolename/role 

BTW I agree using shortnames sucks imensly as I just went through suffering 
as it had been done in myrmidon for some components and not in others. Erk
